I purchased this set of bridge saddles to upgrade the ones that came with my 60th Anniversary Tele. I couldn't be happier! They look awesome, are easy to install and I received them really fast!

Great Saddle Upgrade for Tele

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I purchased these to change out the "bent metal" saddles on my '12 American Standard Tele. These fit perfectly!

I kept some of the springs from the old saddles and used them on some of them where I wanted more tension since the springs that were included were shorter than the originals.

I switched out the old saddles because I like the feel of these better on my palm for muting and there is less adjustment screw sticking out of the top.

Please note, with that said the adjustment screws for the A-B strings were still the normal longer height than both E strings. Although it was better than what I originally had the screws were still a little too high.

I emailed Stew Mac to see if they could sell me a set of the shorter screws but they do not have them.

Luckily enough, I was able to take the shorter screws off of another guitar and it solved the problem. You can purchase these from other vendors though if you need to but it would be nice if Stew Mac had these in stock.

Also note that these are metric adjustment screws which will require a metric allen wrench and not the standard wrench that comes with the Am Standards.

Even with the hassle of the screws (which is my issue not their products) this is a great replacement and worth the $.

Great saddles

Bought these to replace stock Fender, cold-rolled steel saddles and the difference was immediate. The first thing I noticed right out of the package was the weight (in a good way) of the saddles. Once installed I noticed a slight increase to my sustain and a bit more crispness and darkness to my tone.. All in all, very happy with the outcome for such a relatively inexpensive and easy upgrade.

Pretty Nice, But Not Perfect

By
(Customer's Reviews)


Just installed these on my Telecaster Blacktop HH to replace the stamped metal saddles that it came with. I like these a lot, though I do have a few nitpicks that keep me from giving them a 5-star rating.
The springs are good quality metal, but they are cylindrical. So if you use any low tunings you may have to remove them or replace them with conical springs.
The intonation screws are quite long, so again, if you tune low you'll have to replace or modify them so as not to pinch the strings when you set intonation.
The height set screws have smooth action, but are generally too long for a low action (2/32" at the 12th fret). There were two saddles that came with shorter screws, so I used these on the first and sixth strings, but with the radius, all of them had at least a 1/16" above surface.
And finally, while I like the chrome fine, it would be nice if these where offered in brushed steel like the American Standard models. Though, I will admit that the surfaces was smooth and mirror finished.
A nice product, just not perfect.

These are a nice solid replacement. I bought several sets to keep in stock to replace old pitted saddles. A perfect fit for my old T-60's!

Very high quality saddles. I did have to return them for another set, as I did not order correctly. I was impressed by the item quality, and also with the willingness of Stewmac to provide a refund. The replacement saddles were of high quality also!
